SIXX SENSE AIRS WEEKNIGHTS
11PM - 4AM
Rock legend. Best-selling author. Photographer. Fashion designer. Record label president. Nikki Sixx would be a man of many hats, if they didn't cover up his hair. His accomplishments as the founder, bass player and songwriter of Motley Crue, by themselves, are enough to make him an icon. But Nikki's insatiable desire to express himself has led him to become much more than just a music superstar.
Besides the 80 million albums Crue has sold worldwide, Nikki also topped the New York Times Best Seller list for more than six months with his autobiography The Heroin Diaries. The book's soundtrack from his supergroup Sixx: A.M. spawned the song "Life is Beautiful," the most played rock track of 2008. Nikki is the President of the record label Eleven Seven Music. He's a photographer, a philanthropist and the co-founder of the rock couture fashion line Royal Underground. Now, he's expanding his influence again, taking control of the airwaves with the syndicated radio show "Sixx Sense," and its weekend companion, "The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx."
As a personality, producer and writer, Kerri Kasem has made her mark all across radio and television. Besides mixing it up with Nikki on “Sixx Sense” she’s also anchored her own show, The Kerri Kasem Podcast, showcased her love of motorcycles as co-host of Racing Rocks with Riki Rachtman and dished out real estate advice as co-host for the syndicated Mortgage Radio Show. You've seen her on SiTV's The Rub, Spike TV's Ultimate Knockouts, Hannity and Colmes, America's Funniest Home Videos and E! Network's Coming Attractions.
KISS and Motley Crue have announced their summer co-headlining tour -- which will simply be called The Tour -- at a press conference in L.A. yesterday. KISS and the Crue haven't toured together since 1982, and this time around they're pulling out all the stops. Each act will do a 90-minute full-stage show at every stop.
As to exactly how it will work, we can tell you KISS will close the show and that the bands won't be playing together. KISS singer-guitarist Paul Stanley revealed to us that each band will have its own stage and that the specifics are still being designed. Pressed for more details about the kind of spectacle fans can expect, Stanley and Gene Simmons both good-naturedly poked fun at Crue drummer Tommy Lee -- Stanley saying that he'd be playing only one drum and would raise it over his head as a finale, and Simmons "revealing" that they're working with scientists on a 3D version of Tommy's notorious sex tape to be used as a show opener.
KISS has finished a new album, Monster, but Stanley doesn't expect it to be out in time for the tour, although its first single should be. Motley Crue have been working on material for a new album to be released next year. Bassist Nikki Sixx says they'll include a new song called "Sex" on the tour.
Jared from Rockerrazzi was on the scene at the press conference, watch the clip:
